Aims of the Workshop

This workshop will be the first of its kind in the UK, roughly following the example set by Princeton University’s Networking and Mentoring Workshop for Graduate Women in Philosophy held in August 2014.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together graduate and early career women in philosophy from a selection of philosophical areas in order to offer support and encouragement to develop a thriving community of women in philosophy.

The workshop will provide graduate and early career women with feedback on their work and advice on a career in philosophy. Alongside the philosophical talks, there will be presentations discussing a wide range of issues facing women in philosophy. We hope that a consequence of the workshop will be an enhanced support network, which will encourage more women into the discipline.

Elizabeth Burns, Heather Logue, Penelope Mackie, L. A. Paul, Hanna Pickard, Jennifer Saul, and Kathleen Stock.

Career speakers
Jules Holroyd, Elizabeth McKinnell, Louise Richardson, Jennifer Saul, Ema Sullivan-Bissett, and Helen Yetter-Chappell.
